On the decidability and complexity of query answering over inconsistent and incomplete databases

Andrea Calì, Domenico Lembo, Riccardo Rosati
2003 Proceedings of the twenty-second ACM SIGMOD-SIGACT-SIGART symposium on Principles of database systems - PODS '03  
In particular, after showing that the problem is in general undecidable, we identify the maximal class of inclusion dependencies under which query answering is decidable in the presence of key dependencies  ...  In this paper, we address the problem of obtaining consistent answers in such a setting, when key and inclusion dependencies are expressed on the database schema.  ...  In this paper, we address the problem of query answering in a relational setting under the above semantics, when key and inclusion dependencies are expressed on the database schema.  ...

On the decidability and finite controllability of query processing in databases with incomplete information

Riccardo Rosati
2006 Proceedings of the twenty-fifth ACM SIGMOD-SIGACT-SIGART symposium on Principles of database systems - PODS '06  
The kinds of ICs that we consider are functional dependencies (in particular key dependencies) and inclusion dependencies; the query languages we consider are conjunctive queries (CQs), union of conjunctive  ...  In particular, we close two long-standing open problems in query containment, since we prove finite controllability of containment of conjunctive queries both under arbitrary inclusion dependencies and  ...  and inclusion dependencies.  ...

The Impact of Disjunction on Reasoning under Existential Rules: Research Summary [article]

Michael Morak
2014 arXiv   pre-print
For guarded theories with disjunction, we obtain a strong 2EXP lower bound in the combined complexity, even for very restricted formalisms like fixed sets of (disjunctive) inclusion dependencies.  ...  For sticky theories, the query answering problem becomes undecidable, even in the data complexity, and for weakly-acyclic query answering we see a reasonable and expected increase in complexity.  ...  most two. • coNP-completeness in the data complexity for query answering under DIDs up to guarded DTGDs. • EXP-completeness in the data complexity for query answering under weakly-guarded sets of DTGDs  ...

Access patterns and integrity constraints revisited

Vince Bárány, Michael Benedikt, Pierre Bourhis
2013 Proceedings of the 16th International Conference on Database Theory - ICDT '13  
We show that answerability is decidable for the class of guarded dependencies, which includes all inclusion dependencies, and also for constraints given in the guarded fragment of first-order logic.  ...  Unlike prior work, we focus on integrity constraint languages that subsume inclusion dependencies.  ...  We then turn to query answering under schemas that include access patterns and constraints. We distinguish several notions of what it means to answer a query under a schema.  ...

On the data complexity of consistent query answering

Balder ten Cate, Gaëlle Fontaine, Phokion G. Kolaitis
2012 Proceedings of the 15th International Conference on Database Theory - ICDT '12  
In particular, the consistent answers of a query on an inconsistent database provide sound semantics and the guarantee that the values obtained are those returned by the query on every repair of the given  ...  To this effect, we introduce the notion of a universal repair, as well as relaxations of it, and then apply it to the investigation of the data complexity of consistent query answering.  ...  It was also known that the consistent query answering problem was undecidable in combined complexity for unions of conjunctive queries and for sets of inclusion dependencies and functional dependencies  ...

Consistent query answering via ASP from different perspectives: Theory and practice

MARCO MANNA, FRANCESCO RICCA, GIORGIO TERRACINA
2012 Theory and Practice of Logic Programming  
The process of answering user queries under global constraint violations is calledconsistent query answering(CQA).  ...  This paper provides a contribution in this setting: it uniforms solutions coming from different perspectives under a common Answer-Set Programming (ASP)-based core, and provides query-driven optimizations  ...  The only exception is on Query Q 3 which comprises inclusion dependencies only.  ...

On the Complexity of Query Answering under Matching Dependencies for Entity Resolution [article]

Leopoldo Bertossi, Jaffer Gardezi
2013 arXiv   pre-print
The resolved answers to queries are those that are invariant under the resulting class of resolved instances.  ...  In previous work we identified some tractable cases (i.e. for certain classes of queries and MDs) of resolved query answering.  ...  The idea is to rewrite a query, say conjunctive, into a new query such that the new query on the inconsistent database returns as usual answers the consistent answers to the original query.  ...
